Margaret Catchpole

£10.00

Product Information

Of all the words written about Margaret Catchpole in the years since her birth in 1762 only those

contained in this recording are known to have been written by her.

These letters contain references to other letters which are now unaccounted for, presumed lost,

probably in transit, and the eleven that are featured in this recording are all those known to have

survived. Although each letter is dated it is likely that Margaret wrote at least some of them over a

period of time as evidenced by the mentioning of certain events known, through independent

verification, to have occurred after the letter is dated.

The oldest, from Ipswich Gaol to Elizabeth Cobbold in May 1801, is in the Ipswich Museum. Of the

ten written and sent from New South Wales five were sent to Elizabeth Cobbold and are currently in

the Mitchell Library, State Library of New South Wales, Sydney. Five were sent to Uncle and Aunt

Howes who lived in St Nicholas Parish in Ipswich and they are held as part of the Nankivell Collection

in the Australian National Library, Canberra.
